2008 Massachusetts ballot measures

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Three citizen-initiated measures appeared on the November 4, 2008, ballot in Massachusetts.

The Massachusetts Constitution can be amended through initiative and state statutes can be proposed through initiative. All three statewide ballot measures that are on the November 2008 ballot by collecting signatures are proposed statutes (not constitutional amendments).

In Massachusetts, after the state determines which initiatives have succeeded in collecting enough signatures to be placed on the ballot, official numbers/names are assigned to each of the successful initiatives. The Secretary of the Commonwealth has discretion over the order of questions on the ballot. The office of Secretary William F. Galvin said that the income tax question was placed first "based on the perceived relative importance of the proposed laws."[1]

What was on the November ballot

Number Initiative Title Subject Description Status

Question 2 Massachusetts Sensible Marijuana Policy Marijuana policy Decriminalizes small amounts of marijuana Passed
